OGC Certification Services
Does your FOSS4G project implement or is compliant to Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) specifications? Given OSGeo's Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the OGC, OSGeo provides the following services for OSGeo community, incubating or official projects.
OGC certification is broken down into three categories:
- Implementing: product implements an OGC standard, but has not been formally certified to be compliant with that standard
- Certified: product has passed OGC Compliance test for one or more OGC standards
- Reference: product has passed OGC Compliance testing and that is free and publicly available to developers for testing purposes
OGC certification is required on an annual basis for all projects.
If your project is an OGC Reference Implementation you are required to provide a public demonstration instance. SAC provides hosting services and is able to create dedicated VMs on a project specific basis with automation capabilities (Docker etc.), daily/weekly backups and metrics/monitoring to ensure uptime and availability.
Priority is given to OSGeo projects which are OGC Reference Implementations.
